I am in need of two tires (ASAP) however, I am not sure which type of tires I actually need for my Mt Bike. I just purchased it a few months back and I am some what new to the short. The tires that were on my bike, a 26" "Stomp Jumper" are no longer any good, due to all of the thorns I ran over that went throw the tire and into the tubes.
My questions is this:
1) What is a better tire to use for a better ride? 2.1, 2.2 or 2.3.
2) Do I need to different types of treads and if so, why.
3) Which tire do I put in front? the tire with the more aggressive tread or less. Or do I just get two tires with the same aggressive tread. I do know that tire weight is a big factor. It's all about weight. Less is more.
I am being told so many different things. I mostly just ride single track trails, fire road or wherever I can find a dirt trial. I am not a down hill racer. I am just a weekend warrior.
